At one time, Tangie dominated ten competitions within a single year. With tens of thousands of hybrids over the decades, for a particular strain to win even one is already a big feat. But Tangie will have none of that. All it knows is to conquer anything and everything in its path.

When not winning an award here and there, across continents, the strain is overwhelming its users. It does so by delivering an energizing and euphoric buzz.

Tangie comes from two incredible lines of cannabis.

On one side, there is California Orange, a strain known for its outrageous highly desirable aroma. Furthermore, it is also notable for the clear-headed high it induces.

On the other side, there is the family of Skunk. Although it was not explicitly mentioned, the consensus is that it is likely the first phenotype. Since its release some 40 years ago, Skunk No. 1 has already spawned so many other hybrids. It is also famous for having a distinct odor that some people have likened to its namesake. Also, it is one of the best strains that energizes users without the haziness that occurs with others.

In combining the genetics of California Orange and Skunk No. 1, the result is Tangie.

With regards to its availability, several seedbanks breed this strain. But the quality, potency, and flavors vary from one seller to the next.

Effects

People who are unfamiliar with the effects of Tangie are often caught off guard. In many ways, before lighting one up, the fantastic aroma puts people at ease. But this strain is far from innocent as its scent suggests.

Being Sativa-dominant, the electrifying euphoric buzz comes surging in at its onset. In turn, it uplifts the spirit and helps in clearing the head. Friends within a group sharing the weed should find themselves having lively conversations. The overwhelming sense of happiness should keep it fun and exciting.

While the strain does its thing up there, there is also the matter of down there. Tangie has a smaller Indica side. It gradually washes down all over the body. This, in turn, causes the muscles, and eventually the users, to feel calm. Potent enough to provide some medical benefits, it is also weak in that it does not cause a couch-lock.

For most people, they should be able to do tasks better. That is because Tangie helps boost creative thinking. Enhancing that is the temporary increase in energy and a heightened sense of focus.

Fragrance

The sweet and sour scent of orange is unmistakable. Because of this, most people will find its aroma naturally pleasant and very enticing. In some ways, the citrusy odor already conditions the mind to expect a relaxing but very cerebral experience.

Flavors

Thanks to the influence of California Orange, its heritage is evident not only in the odor it emits but also in its flavors. Hence, in the discussion on the best-tasting strains with a fruity taste, Tangie belongs to that conversation.

Adverse Reaction

Most users of Tangie, if there are any side effects, at most are likely to have bloodshot eyes and dry mouth. It is also possible to have other effects such as feeling dizzy. A few people have even reported feeling a little more anxious or paranoid.

While the reactions are not a danger to health, it can be uncomfortable. With that said, the best way to avoid them is to use only a small amount of Tangie.

Compared to many others, this strain smoothly delivers its effects. But that does not mean it is any less potent. In fact, tests show that it has between 19% to 22% THC. To put it in perspective, most people consider 20% to be an insane level.

Medical

Feeling happy and euphoric, muscles relaxed, it is more than enough to wipe away stress. Depression, PTSD, ADD/ADHD and other mental health disorders are challenging to manage. Tangie, by no means, is a treatment or cure, but its mood-altering trait may help make it easier to deal with these conditions.

The Indica side of Tangie, as it works its way to the body, soon induces body relaxation. In a small way, it may also help in pain relief for mild cases. Because it is relatively weak, its effects do not hinder people such as causing laziness. As such, the energy-boosting effects of the Sativa side is not compromised or negated. In this way, Tangie helps combat fatigue.

Growing

Tangie should grow well in both outdoors and indoors under the hands of growers with experience. But that is not to say beginners cannot cultivate it successfully.

To produce the best quality buds with rich flavors, the best medium to use is soil. Hence, the obvious choice is planting it in the garden or the backyard.

Regardless if one chooses to use soil as a medium or hydroponics, combine it with the Screen of Green method while topping it early and occasionally to promote more lateral branching.

Flowering Time

Indoors
Between 9 to 10 weeks, growers can trigger the flowering stage. Once harvested, growers can expect to hold in their hands some 14 to 18 ounces of buds.

Outdoors
Tangie transitions to the next stage at the end of September. Each plant, by then, should produce no less than 18 ounces of buds.
